How to Draw the Beast
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw the Beast from Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle at the top half of the page. This will be the basic shape for the top part of the Beast's head. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a big U-shaped, curved line under the circle as a guide for the Beast's chin and jaw. These shapes form the guide for the head.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head, one vertical and one horizontal. The horizontal line should cut across the circle, while the vertical line should cross both the circle and the U-shaped line. Bend the lines a little so that they contour to the shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place the Beast's facial features later on.
Step 4: On top of the lower edge of the main circle, draw a small oval with a sideways orientation. This will be the guide for the bottom part of the Beast's nose.
Step 5: On top of the oval, draw an arc similar to an upside-down letter U as a guide for the top part of the Beast's nose.
